In 1945 Arts & Architecture magazine began a program where they commissioned architects to build model homes as examples of housing that could accommodate the millions of U.S. troops returning from the war.

Thirty-six of these case study houses were designed during the program's twenty-year run (see #8 here), and most are located around Los Angeles.

Case Study House #22, also known as the Stahl House, was designed by Pierre Koenig and built in 1959 in the Hollywood Hills. You can see it in a number of films including Why Do Fools Fall In Love, Galaxy Quest and The Thirteenth Floor.
